Overseas Tibetans are always welcomed back "home" and settling down, said by a senior Tibetan official during a meeting joined by a Tibet delegation with renowned overseas Chinese leaders and local Tibetans in New York on June 22.

Padma Choling, vice secretary of the Party Committee of the Tibet Autonomous Region and director-general of the Standing Committee of the Tibet People's Congress, led a Tibet delegation to Canada and US recently and exchanged views with the local politicians and overseas Chinese in both countries.

During the symposium in New York, Padma Choling introduced that there are about 200,000 Tibetans living overseas, mainly in Canada, Switzerland and the US. Many elderly overseas Tibetans have come back for living and the door to Tibet is always open to more oversea Tibetans.

As a review of the two week's trip to Canada and US, Padma Choling said the outcoming is fruitful.

He hopes people in the two countries would have a better understanding of Tibet through this communicational trip. The leap forward economic and social development achievements and the religious freedom maintained in Tibet are indubitable, while the purpose of some groups disseminating the biased information is obvious. "We are acknowledged the living condition of overseas Tibetans and we welcome them to come back to settle down," said by Padma Choling.

China has emphasized the work of overseas Tibetans by setting up the Tibet Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese on June 8.

The organization aims to provide access for returned overseas Tibetans to ask for help and pursue development abroad, and built a major platform for them to get information about and participate in Tibet's development, " according to Lin Jun, chairman of All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese.
